This gaited mare is what wife's looking for as and what a stable with indoor arena, not far from home...but mare had an old injury to right rear leg.
Imagine this kitchen area off of the bath/tack room!
Mare seemed to favor that leg, so we'll keep looking. She was a sweetheart. Me...if I had her I wouldn't sell her.

Wow, what a barn and I would also like to have it, lollol. The mare is really pretty, I would take her too, lollol.

That leg injury looks like an old ran-thru-the-fence injury from years ago. Sometimes the leg never heals aesthetically but the horse is fine.

My own mare has a really nasty looking scar from a leg injury when she was very young. It has never bothered her; I've climbed mountains on this horse and she once saved us both from falling off a cliff when we were shoved onto the precipice by another horse. She has had some bouts of arthritis in recent years as she's gotten older, but it's actually been with the opposite leg, not the one that was injured. My guess is that it is from the stress put on her good leg while her injured leg was healing all those years ago. Regardless, it's been very manageable. FYI, I got her when she was 5, and she's 16 now.

Whatever horse you end up getting, make sure you get a pre-purchase exam done by a vet.

I kind of didn't like the way she had what appeared to be hard lumps of fat, or knotted muscles on her hind quarters. But, temperment is worth a lot.
